Coming Soon

This weekend we're putting the finishing touches on my spankin' new website. I can't wait for you to see it!

The trailer for Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts is delightfully terrifying--A.Beedle and his crew have outdone themselves once again. This time, though, I'm not going to gather the family 'round the computer for a viewing. Last year, poor Bengal was frightened for days after he saw the trailer for Isabella Moon. And I already scared him once in the past couple weeks when I started to play that 30-second scary story for him.

While I finished the copy for the site, I got re-acquainted with Tommy Bolin's music. He died way back in 1976, well before I ever heard of him around 1980. His album Private Eyes is one of the most sensual albums I can recall hearing. (He kind of reminds me of Jim White.) I downloaded some acoustic versions of the songs from itunes today. I love that music no longer has an expiration date.

Have you recently re-discovered any music from your past?

Sunday's guest blogger Kyle Minor had another great post Friday at Sarah Weinman's site. It's on literature and mystery. Check it out here.

Have a fun weekend!

P.S. I got the magnets with the cover of Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts on them. If you pre-order the book, I'll happily send you a couple!
